Interviewer: Shioda sensei, were you doing some special kind of conditioning?

Shioda: No – in Aikido, in order not to create stagnation in the body, you mustn’t build up your muscles. However, I didn’t understand that when I was young, so I would hide from Ueshiba sensei and lift weights. When he found out I’d really get scolded.
But...

Of course it’s natural to want to make your body strong when you’re young, and logic comes later. Anyway, you should just train as much as you can. I trained everyday from five in the morning until nine at night! I think that kind of period is important to have when you’re young.

Re: Over 40's, Weight Training for Aikido.

Your blog page is fine and sensible but has nothing to do with Aikido.
You don't even mention Ueshiba's own comments on the subject, which are enlightening.
That guy was heavily muscled through weight training : there is a picture or two.
